If I could tie a good knot I would make this iron rope chandelier myself. But I think it would be a lot harder than it looks. I have a hard time tying a necktie around my neck. Three solid iron bands are suspended in air purely by rope and held together with knots. Each band of iron has eyelets where the natural jute rope is threaded through. And of course there are twelve lit candles on the middle band to make this a stunning chandelier.
Iron Rope Chandelier
Most of us understand a knot to be a method of fastening or securing some item by tying or interweaving rope, twine, straps or even chains. But did you know that there is also a mathematical knot. I had no idea. A standard mathematical knot is closed. It has no ends to tie or untie and the properties of friction and thickness do not apply. If you want the more scientific definition, a mathematical knot is an embedding of a circle in a three dimensional space considered with continuous deformations. I think I would like to stay with the more traditional definition of a rope knot. There are rope knots for boating. For example, a bow line is the rope attached to the bow of your boat that used for docking or towing. There are rope knots for fishing, a backing line, braided line and dropper line. And there are also rope knots for climbing which I think would be very important if you get my drift. There are single, double and fixed rope knots. But the knots I like best are on this iron rope chandelier. These knots are not for boating, climbing or fishing. They are for eating, drinking and just having fun with family and friends under the candle light of this impressive rope chandelier. Now can someone untie my hands please.
